Is it true?

I just had reports from various people that an upcoming building under construction, opposite dubai marina has caught a fire and the labors are stuck on the top levels.... due to which the traffic on Shk Zayed road is all backedup to Jebel Ali.

Can someone please confirm.

Just saw some smoke coming out of a building & it seems to have been put out by now.

Hmm can people from that part of town post pix / videos here?

Am sure that bloggers can do a better job than the media

I looked at it from Dubai Marina a few minutes ago - about 4.30pm Dubai time. The fire is out, half the emergency services in Dubai seem to be there, two more ambulance with sirens going were coming in. Unfortunatlely I guess that means casualties.

From the burn marks it looks like the top five or six floors were affected. It has a solid flat roof so I guess helicopters could have gone in to rescue any people trapped up there.

I took some pics - I'll post them on my blog in a minute.
